  • If you expect to go to this Museum and make a day of it, forget it. It is perfect for a quick, pq is very small and there's not much to be seen.

  • I met the Museum to more than 40 years ago, when I was in your showcase and exhibits Rico collection of the construction of the city of belo horizonte and the daily life of the city. Rooms and its objects, mining and construction equipment used at the time of your creation, clothes, money, rich collection of pieces and utensils of the 19 century. Today the newspaper clippings and pictures of demonstrations, strikes, trade unionists and sindicalismos photos. a tragedy what was done to this museum.

  • The site the place is beautiful. It seems like every old stands in the middle of a beautiful garden, pure deception. The Carnival is closed and the exhibition in the old House is horrible. Disappointment!!!!
